Journeys is an installation of a 15-metre drystone wall of felt by Claire de Ruiter meandering around a tree. Each stone in the wall has been made from sheepswool from farms along the A537 'Cat and Fiddle road from Macclesfield to Buxton, apparently the most dangerous stretch of road in Britain. The artist invited contributions from others, and many a stone contains drawings or texts that relate to the personal journeys undertaken by participants. The felted "wishing" tree contains wishes for health and happiness that are also reflected upon the gallery walls.
Artist: Claire de Ruiter
The Exhibition runs until 1st November at Buxton Museum & Art Gallery.
